Some creators are just geniuses, going that extra mile to realise that not everyone uses SL the same way. SOY at this round of Collabor88 made these amazing Antique Wooden Figures, and had them laying down, sitting on a chair etc…but what they also included was a not fixed version, meaning all the pieces while linked, are in fact separate and modify. So I was able to edit the arm pieces, and rotate them, then rotate the hand and wrist to create a very scary (to me) pat on the shoulder pose…which would definitely scare the beeswax out of anyone just about to take their new puppy for a walk.

The puppy is by Black Bantam, which is an offshoot brand of Pink Acid. The mesh pets they are creating are so cute, and this one has so many options, even including name changing. So based on the wonderful footwear by Ingenue, that is perfectly in season with all that may Bewitch you, they are called Tabatha and so is my Puppy. I loved Bewitched and even the Tabatha series was so fun. Whimsy and I were just saying they should do a now version of it, or go further, and have Tabatha as the Mum of a teenager just getting to terms with her powers and high school – that is something I would watch for ever.

The other day I went on a shopping spree at Lapointe & Bastchild,  some serious clicking occurred. They have newer items including both Physique body options, original and hourglass, so I was buying everything in sight. I picked up these great double belted jeans, and the fatpack has so many options, even includes a belt off options which means they are two jeans in one, with a huge array of colour mixing to be done. You will see more of my spree in future posts.

With the jeans I am going with the beautiful shoulder-less top by SPIRIT , with the long vest like cardigan also by them at this round of Collabor88.  Spirit always creates such wonderful mix and match items, and their style is perfect. The drape of the hair by Exile, perfectly suited the whole ensemble, this hair is gorgeous if you do not have it already, get to steppin.

Walking out of this charming carriage house by Hive, you can see some of the great pieces by Cheeky Pea at this round of N21. The fortune tellers set has these lush oversized chairs, with draped fabrics, and beautiful rugs, its all very textile loving, and even though themed, it is definitely not gimmicky enough to not be able to use many pieces all the time.

THE STOOL!

The Stool

The other day I did a post and grabbed bits and pieces needed to fill the space. One item I grabbed was a stool that Whimsy had rezzed out randomly, which I also owned. I did not realise until after the post that I had not included information on the stool. I had saved all information to my notes, and somehow managed to neglect this lovely little stool.

It is lovely, it is actually perfect, the colour, the worn look of it, the industrial themed metal. The height, the shape, everything about it is what one wants from a stool, but I was a horrible person, and did not give it the credit it so rightly deserved.

I logged back in to get the information from the stool and realised that the stool deserved more respect than an edit to a previous post, it deserved its own time in the spotlight. So todays post is featuring the European Taste Stool…a beautiful piece by YS&YS (love their furniture and props pieces) and I hope one that will find its way into your home.

League creator Nena Janus just released some awesome Mid feet strapped pumps. You get lots of great options, whether purchasing the single colours (shoe colour strap or black strap options) or a four pack, like a miniature fatpack ( shoe colour straps + black + a mixed strap – like the one I am wearing) or the fatpack which has all the bases, all the straps, all the mixes and even a leopard base shoe extra bonus option. So much shoe for your dollars.

I was fascinated by the mixed strap options, and surprising to many chose the one with the purple, because the olive green has much love, the blue works so well with my look, and yeah it was rocking. It was fun to also add elements of the green through my what seemed a blue and black look. From my nail polish colour, to the stones in the stunning new necklace by Mandala, that is at this round of N21. Also so many options in the jewellery, with many stone options, metal and leather options, you can mix and match with literally dozens of outfits.

I am wearing a top by Clef de Peau that is at Kustom9 this round and is a very attractive strappy bra top. I did notice that unless your cleavage settings is more separated the mesh can fold in the centre, that is just how mesh can be, so if you to notice that on anything you wear, give the buoyancy or cleavage options a little tweak and it should see you right.

Wearing them with these great leggings that Pixicat have at C88 this round, so many different colour and print options for them, and definitely a staple for this season and all for that matter, good leggings are always a must have item.

Top of the me, is this new hair by Tableau Vivant, that I had fun playing with. The bobbypins change colour with a tinting option so I was sliding all over the colour picker finding my proper blue. Then I decided to go a little more fun with hair colour, opting for the silvery look. Then some smoldering eyes and lips with the new Alyx skin by Glam Affair that just hit the wall in the store. I am gaga over the make up options, it was really a thing settling on the one I ended up with, so make sure you try them all when you demo. I just loved that with all the blue, and silver around me, that the black eyes did come off slightly navy, so it just all works it.

Moved bits and pieces of furniture around, resized pumpkins and had a great time with the two sets by Second Spaces and Pilot at Collabor88…adding in a lovely piece of wall art I got at a Kustom9 Gacha by Haikei.

Fall not Over

Fall not Over 1 Fall not Over

It is one of a bloggers favourite things to hear ‘ I really like what you are wearing’ when off the posestand and just visiting friends. Even more so when the friend is a creator, and it is as much a testament to their appreciation of good creations, as the creation itself. The outfit was the one in this post, casual but in an elegant way, with the addition of some stunning boots, and gorgeous jewellery.

I am wearing a new skin by YS&YS for LeLutka heads, that is at this round of Shiny Shabby. The skin is lovely and rich, with beautiful make up options included in the hud. I am again wearing my LeLutka hairbase, but with the Vanity Hair release for this round of Collabor88. I did edit in PS a little as I wanted the hairline and strands to blend in with the base used.

The sweater is by Tres Blah and the natural fall of the folds, and the off-shoulder style are perfectly suited to the combination of the look. Adding some leggings to fit into the perfect boots for the season. The boots are by Baiastice, and the heel type is just perfectly suited to the weather. I wanted to dress it up even further, so this necklace by Glam Affair a past Collabor88 item was perfect, such beautiful detailing, even the clasp at the nape of the neck is wonderful.

Whimsy and I went over to Kustom9 the other day, and picked up some delightful decor pieces from a Gacha by Concept, I have resized the mirror and the pot, the pot came really large, and funnily enough when things are smaller I usually stretch them, this time I went the other way. So in love with the chair which is a rare, so cute, so vintage.

When needing to put together a look of a more streamlined professional nature, the combination of Ison and Just Because works well. While not really work wear with the exposed stomach, the style still has a very classy edge to it. The wrap sweater is a beautiful knit piece by Ison, with attention to scale, that can often miss in Second Life. The colour choices are perfect for this time of the year.

Pairing it up with these wonderful editor slacks, I picked them up a while ago when I went fatpack mad over at Just Because. The belt is a separate attachment, which is great for dressing up or down a look. I slipped on these lovely shoes by Empire that are created for the Mid height feet by Slink. They are such cute pointed dance style shoes, a great look for any time of day. Still obsessed with my widows peak hairbase by LeLutka, I added the cassie medium hair attachment, from a previous hairbase release, and found a new love for the look.

The addition of stunning jewelry pieces by Kunglers and I am ready for the day, or night.

Cubbyhole

Cubbyhole

Fireplaces in Australia, you would snicker and scoff I am sure. We do have them though, but the thing with fireplaces, is if you rent you are not allowed to use them, and if you own, well who wants the hassle of cleaning them, and having them professionally seen to etc. So unless they are the cast iron detached kind, generally built in fireplaces end up storage. Now mind you, I am yet to actually ever see one this big, because again basing most of our older architecture on England, the fireplaces were tiny little contraptions to just warm a room and could barely store a pair of shoes.

This kind of fireplace is beautiful, and it is a new release by Cheeky Pea. I did like the idea of using it for something other than fire, and seeing as it is already blazing hot outside today, just curling up in the shade of it, with some cool bricks and great books, I would be in my own little bliss. This set was made with readers and collectors in mind, the sides of it are all recessed shelving, and that just gives you more reason to pull out all your knick knack pieces you have collected over the years and make your home more homey.

I am lounging about in my new leather leggings by Addams, with the off the shoulder mid top that fits perfectly under the suspenders of the leggings. Very 80’s dance video wear, and I just love that. Dance movies are my love, I saw there was a Honey 3 movie the other day and lost my cool, Whimsy just laughed at me, mind you she did not know of Honey 1 so she is in trouble. The leggings also have slit knee holes, so they are very fun, and fit the bodies they are made for very well.

So I do not lose track of time in my cubbyhole, I am wearing the latest watch and bangles set by Minimal. I really dig the chunky style of the watch, and it makes it very unisexy. Finishing off the sexy with the gorgeous hair by Mina, that has that perfectly effortless loose side pony look to it, and the textures are so rich and vibrant. The skin is by Glam Affair and is the Shana skin, I have not worn her in a while, and really like the natural look to it, but had to glam it up a bit with some Orchidea lipstick also by Glam Affair, the perfect red for the leggings.

If I Flap Fast Enough

If I flap fast enough//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.js

Being a teen in the 80’s this was the done thing, stretching our sweater sleeves as long as we could, and then shoving our thumbs into a hole we made in the sweater. No consideration for the money spent on the cardigan by our parents, and never thinking we would get into trouble at school, as we are a uniforms country down here.

So seeing this sweater by Amrie was a must have moment. It was a time when you still had all those dreams about what you would do when school was over, what you could be when you grew up…and still under the impression that growing up and being an adult was going to be cool, and fun and less responsibilities than homework and chores. HA!

The whole look kind of resembles that time, and also reminds me of one of my favourite shows ‘Girl Meets World’. I love this show, I do not think there has been one episode that has not made me cry. I of course watched the original ‘Boy Meets World’ and they could have really messed it up, but they nailed it, and I am glad such a show exists for younger watchers. I felt like there was a whole decade or more of t.v that no longer covered real issues kids face in growing up, without having to be so adult in nature. It is fun, it is light, and the two girls have a fun fashion sense.

So I am channeling my Maya today, and with these very cool looking glasses by Minimal, that have a very old worldly aviator goggles kind of look to them, I reckon that if I flap hard enough, maybe I can make magic happen.

Also loving on these cool denim shorts by Gizza, with the partially unbuttoned look, that just screams too much comfort food, and time to slouch on the sofa and veg for the day…again that imagination of no responsibilities running wild. I teamed the look up with these great new Low Sneakers by Maitreya. I am wondering where the 41 size went, this stopping at 39 thing hmph (just kidding, size matters not when fitting to feet) and the feet options are both Maitreya flat and Slink flat, so you are very much covered for wear, if you have either, or both.

There are many great options to choose from if you go fatpack, and such fun little details, like zebra print, one does not always know one needs zebra print, until it is there as an option. As usual with Maitreya’s super attention to detail, they are not crisp and straight out of the box looking, they are worn in and scuffed appropriately.

This hair is very cool, it has the side french braiding, and is a Spellbound gacha I picked up somewhere in my travels, I did not even know I had it as it was still in a box, unpacking more often needs to be a thing. I actually did search Spellbound in my inventory though, as I had not worn them in forever.

Pic was taken over at Crestwick Island which is a fun town for shooting pics.
